3 Proven Ways Of Reducing The Cost Of Household Energy


It’s a tough time financially for many householders at the moment, and it doesn’t make things any easier if your energy bills are very expensive this winter.

The extra energy you’re having to consume whilst spending more hours than normal at home may be what’s making them shoot up in cost, but it won’t be the only cause of it.  

Recently, experts have come out and warned that the average annual energy bill could increase by £171 this year. 

It won’t come to that though if you make a few changes:

Switch to a cheaper tariff

When was the last time you did an energy price-check? If you’ve never done it, you are losing out on a huge saving. 

You can find out now by visiting a comparison site and putting in details of your current energy usage. It’s really easy to switch suppliers, and you won’t be cut off at any stage!

How does a £300+ annual saving sound when switching for the first time? Even if you’ve switched in the last year or two, you could still make a good saving. 

Fit your home with a new boiler

You will struggle to reduce your fuel costs if your boiler is particularly old and doesn’t provide a sufficient standard of thermal efficiency. It may also be prone to breaking down. 

Buying a new A-rated boiler is a big investment, but it will be worth your money, as you will discover when you find out how much it can save you each year. 

The Energy Saving Trust estimates that a boiler upgrade of this kind can lead to a yearly saving of £340 for each of the next 15+ years. 

Install energy efficient windows and doors

Energy efficient windows and doors are our speciality, so we know better than anyone just how essential they are for restricting heat loss and keeping energy bills down. 

The money spent on new windows and doors will be recouped through the savings they make you, and these savings can be massive if the windows and doors are well-specified. 

It’s possible for them to cut heat loss by 75%, which over the long-term will save you thousands of pounds. 

TradeMark has a very varied collection of energy efficient windows and doors, and can supply you with a FREE quote for any of our stylish designs.
